8:34 am
with you guys. you started the book "wow everybody's fat." two paragraphs later you said i'm fat, too. >> i had to get up in front of the church and say, guys i only gained two to three pounds a year but i've been your pastor for 30 years so i need to lose 90 pounds. >> you were doing a baptism. >> it wasn't a very spiritual thought. i was doing a baptism and the kind of church that puts people under water. i literally was bringing people up and that day i baptized 850 people. took me about four hours. not a very spiritual thought, we are all fat. we all used to be thin and i thought, but, i'm fat. i got up on sunday and said look i'm going to get some well-known doctors to help me get in shape and i asked if anybody wanted to join me.
8:35 am
i thought a couple hundred people signed up and 12,000 signed up the first day and 15,000. and we lost 250,000 pounds the first year. >> what is the daniel plan? >> it adds three typical things. most programs deal with food and exercise. okay. but we say human beings are a lot more complex than that. there are emotional reasons why you eat and spiritual reasons why you eat and mental reasons. so, we added faith and focus and friends or accountability and changing the way you think and a spiritual motivation adding that thing. those are the things that will keep you going because most diets are built on will power. will power will keep you going for a long period of time. it doesn't work. you eventually give up. >> i think this is such a great idea because so many people struggle with their weight and the church the community is a great way for people to get together around a shared goal. >> that's what we found.
8:36 am
people who actually did the program together lost twice as much together as people who did it alone. the power of the community. the community was the medicine. >> you don't want to disappoint your friends. >> it's powerful how you can help each other. they exercised together and that accountability, the love factor was what helped people change. the positive peer pressure. >> the pastor calls friends the secret sauce. the brain is connected to your waste. >> well your brain pushes you away from the table telling you had enough or your brain that gives you permission to have the third doughnut. >> but when you gain weight you lose brain power. >> 140 studies that say as your weight goes up the actual physical size and function of your brain goes down. which should scare the fat off anyway. the health of your brain determines who you are, how success you are. you can reverse it.
8:37 am
there is evidence we have if you damaged your brain through bad behaviors. >> you can grow your brain bad by eating better. >> how do you avoid the yo-yo experience you had. >> i lost a son after 27 years of mental illness and i kind of had a triple whammy. i was in the hospital for a back problem and then i couldn't exercise and then i didn't sleep for six months and i had members bringing me food every day in larger quantities than i could possibly eat. i lost 65 of the 90 i wanted to lose right away. during the six months after matthew i gained 35 back and i lost 30 of that already and i'm back on the program. i'm going to be the first guy to prove this works twice. part of it is the motivation. as daniel said looking good wasn't enough to motivate me. and living longer diddant antn't motivate me. i'm going to die and go to
8:38 am
heaven. >> what is prescriptive in the plan. you said you have a detox. >> most of us are getting industrial processed foods that has hijacked our taste buds and metabolism and getting off the junk food and the sugar and processed food and quitting dairy and gluten for ten days gives you a jump start to restart your metabolism. it wasn't a weight loss program, although people lost hundreds of pounds. it's a program for creating health. as a side effect, the disease goes away and the side effect you lose weight. it's a life-long plan. >> just to start, your taste buds make themselves new every ten days which is why starting with ten days is just perfect. >> everyone will tell you and you're a psychiatrist the hardest part about losing weight sometimes you can exercise and eat healthier, really a lot of mental blocking of sticking to a plan. >> that's the focus. >> this thing that is always out of control. >> things happen in your life
8:39 am
you know. you have challenges in your life that really get you off track. >> we're human, it's true. >> we actually teach people not to believe every stupid thought they have. so getting your thoughts clear, clean, accurate like your food is -- >> critical. >> understand two things. detox will give you a fresh start and have your brain or in fact, your taste buds programmed. the second question for me always, what can you eat? >> real food. >> i'm saying eat in moderation. >> real food. >> in other words, he said earlier something about eat what grows. >> if it grows on a plant, eat it. if it's built on a plant, don't eat it. >> if it was made by man, stay away. if it was made by nature probably a good thing. >> this program is about abundance. the recipes are amazing. and when you get rid of the processed foods, your taste buds come back and then things begin to taste wonderful. >> i want to go back to talk
8:40 am
about matthew for a second. you talk so beautifully about him in your book and the setback and many people have setbacks and it's okay. in addition, you wanted to talk about mental health and what your family went through. >> well that's why we say the faith and the focus are two of the secret sauces you use along with friends that make this different. you have to change your mindset. if i have a boat and it's heading across the lake and autopilot says go east and i want that boat to go west. i have two opportunity to change it. i can grab the steering wheel and physically force it to go the other way, that's will power. eventually i get tired and let go of the steering wheel and i go off the diet and start smoking, whatever. the other way is to change the auto pilot. we talk about this on the daniel plan. the bible calls it being renewed in the spirit of your mind. be transformed by the way you think. not just changing your behavior it's changing your thoughts which takes it out of will power and puts it more into changing
8:41 am
the auto pilot. >> the most important words to health then what? ask any question and then say, then what? >> god made your body, geezjesus died for your body, you better take care of it. >> thank you. >> the daniel plan goes on sale now. >> oh, man. >> and the man who found a home for zombies. zombies on primetime tv. zombies are doing very well. the man behind that is in our toyota green room. breaking rules
